Entrances to Cave Without a Name
The original entrance was a 45 foot shaft in what looks like a well in the foreground. Remains of prehistoric animals have been found at the bottom of the shaft. A WPA project built the new entrance, which is a spiral staircase in the structure in the background. They also blasted a 14 foot long hole in a stone wall at the bottom, so you don't have to crawl on your stomach through the original small hole into the main room.
It's fun being a cowboy!!
"A sleepy Texas town"
Boerne, the county seat of Kendall County, is boundaried by Cibolo Creek, Interstate Highway 10, and U.S. Highway 87 some thirty miles northwest of San Antonio in the southern part of the county. In 1849 a group of German colonists from Bettina camped on the north side of Cibolo Creek, about a mile west of present-day Boerne. They called their new community Tusculum, after Cicero's home in ancient Rome. In 1852 Gustav Theissen and John James laid out the town's site and changed the name to Boerne in honor of Ludwig Börne, a German poet and publicist. Ironically, Mr. Boerne never visited the town that was named after him.
